The 5th Annual 72 Hour Film Shootout begins on Friday, June 20, 2008. The competition theme will be announced at the New York City launch party to be held at White Rabbit Lounge (145 East Houston Street, New York City) and simultaneously posted online at 72hourfilmshootout.com at 8pm. As a special treat, New York hip hop sensation Koba will be performing live at the launch party!
The Top 10 will screen at the New York Asian American International Film Festival organized by Asian Cinevision (July 10-19, 2008), the First Annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (October 24-30, 2008), and a special screening event organized by NYC-based Aspire Asian Film Circle.
This year the AAFilmLab together with the Museum of Chinese in America (MoCA) have added a special award category to this years Shootout: The Chinatown Award! Films that incorporate a Chinatown as a location or narrative device are entered into the “Chinatown Award” category. Selection of the winning film will be decided by both MoCA and AAFilmLab. The Chinatown Award will be comprised of in-kind services totaling over $5000 in prizes from Deluxe Post Production, Final Draft, and Ningin.com. (The inclusion of the Chinatown element in a film has no bearing whatsoever on judging for other award categories.)
